The Brotherhood Archives hosts stories set in the Dias Brotherhood and is a cross-genre fantasy novel written by J. Ander. It all started out as a serialized experiment to a much bigger project. Hy’Ruh-Ha (Novel #1) was created as a stand alone fantasy novel that was written as a side story a larger novel that J. Ander is currently
slaving over working on sitting on. It isn’t your typical fantasy novel. It’s a high fantasy drama one might call it slice of life. New Term: It is Chronicle Fantasy.

Yes you do need to read them in order.
Soletus, a young elf, was looking forward to completing his monk training to become a Warden of the Dias Brotherhood. However, he is held back by his well-meaning, but strict father. Instead of joining the ranks, he is paired up with a traumatized shy boy name Mien. Between Mien’s anxious odd behavior and the crime he committed, helping him isn’t a duty that Soletus enjoys and isn’t one he’s been trained for. Soletus is about to give up on him until Mien saves his life. And Soletus decides that the boy deserves another chance despite what he’s has done.

Rating: Everything is T and SFW
I tried to keep Hy’Ruh-Ha for all ages but it’s not. There are some things that happen in this story that aren’t appropriate for younger readers or sensitive readers. So parents an people you’ve been warned. There is the rare language, fantasy violent, discussions about abuse, and one depiction of what one might consider abuse that’s near the end.
Other Warnings: This story Contains Religious Content.
While I don’t consider this a Christian Story my faith does echo a bit in this story. This novel depicts members of a religious order. While it’s not a plot point, the characters are religious and may talk about their religion from time to time. If you don’t like it, then don’t read. It’s not a story or everyone. I’m not going to lie. I mean, self-indulgence at it’s finest.
J. Ander is a dyslexic fantasy writer who spends vast amounts of time daily attached to a keyboard. Some believe it’s a product of extreme introversion. Others are fairly certain it’s just a sign of craziness.
